WhatsApp Messenger is a FREE messaging app available for iPhone and other smartphones. WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family. Switch from SMS to WhatsApp to send and receive messages, calls, photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
WHY USE WHATSAPP:
• NO FEES: WhatsApp uses your phone's Internet connection (4G/3G/2G/EDGE or Wi-Fi, as available) to let you message and call friends and family, so you don't have to pay for every message or call.* There are no subscription fees to use WhatsApp.
• MULTIMEDIA: Send and receive photos, videos, and Voice Messages.
• FREE CALLS: Call your friends and family for free with WhatsApp Calling, even if they're in another country.* WhatsApp calls use your phone's Internet connection rather than your cellular plan's voice minutes. (Note: Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details. Also, you can't access 911 and other emergency service numbers through WhatsApp).
• GROUP CHAT: Enjoy group chats with your contacts so you can easily stay in touch with your friends or family.
• WHATSAPP WEB: You can also send and receive WhatsApp messages right from your computer's browser.
• NO INTERNATIONAL CHARGES: There's no extra charge to send WhatsApp messages internationally. Chat with your friends around the world and avoid international SMS charges.*
• SAY NO TO USERNAMES AND PINS: Why bother having to remember yet another username or PIN? WhatsApp works with your phone number, just like SMS, and integrates seamlessly with your phone's existing address book.
• ALWAYS LOGGED IN: With WhatsApp, you're always logged in so you don't miss messages. No more confusion about whether you're logged in or logged out.
• QUICKLY CONNECT WITH YOUR CONTACTS: Your address book is used to quickly and easily connect you with your contacts who have WhatsApp so there's no need to add hard-to-remember usernames.
• OFFLINE MESSAGES: Even if you miss your notifications or turn off your phone, WhatsApp will save your recent messages until the next time you use the app.
• AND MUCH MORE: Share your location, exchange contacts, set custom wallpapers and notification sounds, email chat history, broadcast messages to multiple contacts at once, and more!
*Data charges may apply. Contact your provider for details.

OMG!!!!! You guys listened to my review and made it happen!!!!!!! Love the videocalls. You are THE BEST APP IN THE WHOLE WIDE WORLD!!! Love you so much. Lol maybe I'm getting a little bit greedy but is there a way we can "Like" or "Heart" someone's message on Whatsapp? Kind of like Groupme has the ❤️ option. It would be very useful for Groups. Like if someone says something funny and instead of all the group going: "HAHAHA" and we get about 10 notifications that say only "HAHAHA" or "LOL" it would be cool if we can have the option of just liking the funny message. I don't know. Something to think about. If you guys don't think it would be a cool addition then don't do it but just consider it. Thanks again for being awesome. 😄👍🏼👌🏼🙌🏼
I love this app. Every single update you guys make is amazing. Please don't let me down on the next one. We all want video calls. Make it happen. If you have that then you will undoubtedly be the best app in the whole wide world. Also, if you implement it please make it work great, with clarity and HD. (No freezes) You guys are the best. This app ROCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! Thanks for your time on reading my review. 😁😁😁😁
OK but not the best; not 100% open source
Whatsapp used to be one of the best messaging apps, but has since been surpassed by others. For example, Wire has more features than whatsapp, including encrypted GROUP video calling, recalling messages, and expiring messages. Wire also respects your privacy (doesn't require a phone number or access to all of your contacts data) and is now 100% open source. Wire let's you sign up with only an email address on its web app, then sign in with email in the mobile app. Wire has all the other features too like group texting, voice calling, voice and video messaging, and more, all encrypted, all the time, all free with no ads. Whatsapp has recently changed their terms of service to allow whatsapp to share your phone number with their parent company, Facebook, presumably for marketing and advertising purposes. Wire is not only ad-free, but they don't create profiles of data on their users and will never share your personal information with third parties. If you like whatsapp, then you'll love Wire.
I love How WhatsApp has video calls now, the quality of the video is really good. I still feel like it would need some updates for more people to use it, I think some of the updates that could be done to it could be, adding gifs, stickers, filters to pictures, and a new design because people always love new designs and get excited about it. I've always loved WhatsApp it's the best way to communicate with my family and friends but I think some updates could make it even better.
